Overseas Training and Detachment

Because of our limited local airspace, we have to spread our wings for flying training with our overseas counterparts. Our people get to interact and learn from their counterparts, immersing and enriching themselves in diverse cultures around the world. This not only strengthens the bonds of understanding and cooperation, but also allows us to benefit from their long Air Force histories and experience. Australia, North America and Europe play host to our long-term, detachment programmes.
